THE NATIONAL Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) will meet with local government and regional officials in Palo, Leyte, on Wednesday, July 11, for a regional summit on food security. “As the state-of-the-nation speech of the President draws near, it is important that we take stock of how we could better reverse the impacts of disasters on poor Filipino families in Eastern Visayas… especially those who have been affected by calamities in the past years,” said NAPC Secretary Liza L. Maza in a statement released Tuesday, July 10. Eastern Visayas was the worst hit region by super typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) that struck in November 2013.
